Bo's stuff is a quite out of date and I haven't looked at it for a 
while, but the basic setup goes:

Start with a working VS2003 & cygwin.

Checkout cvsnt
Checkout cvsdeps

Setup include/lib paths paths to the various items in cvsdeps 
(unfortunately for cvsnt there's no premade settings file like there is 
for evs so this is still a manual task).

If you want oracle support, put paths to OCI headers/libs in the VS 
search path, otherwise disable the oracle database support lib in the 

I think mkmanifest needs to be in the vs executable path too (it's in 
smartloader/bin) unless a full path has been put in by now.

I don't think you need to go with that complex checkout procedure - last 
time I did it I just checked out CVSNT_2_0_x and it worked fine. 
Shouldn't be any different for the 2382 branch.

build.h is built at the start of the build process automatically.. you 
didn't post any errors producing that though so I'm not sure what's 
going on there.
